The FrogGrog slot comes with 5 reels and 23 pay lines and is themed around a world of magic and highly rewarding burping frogs. The slot is powered by Thunderkick so you can be quite certain that from the graphics straight through to the design of the bonus features it will be a bliss to play. The slot includes a variety of fantastic bonus features with creative detail added to it but you can read more about this in our detailed discussion of the bonus features further on in the review.
The slot is playable on all devices from your desktop straight through to you mobile and tablet devices and the best part is, that except from buttons moving into a more practical slot on mobile devices nothing else changes. The slot includes 4 Bonus Rounds, a jackpot of up to 200 times your total stake and instead of free spins you’ll witness a pot of magic brewing that will spew out great fortune.
The slot is colourful with exquisite sound and designs and you will quite easily get lost in a world of magic potions, burping frogs and a Mystery game. The game is perfect for players of all levels as you can play from as little as 0.10 to a whopping 100 coins.
Look & Feel
The game backdrop of this slot reminds me of Merlin’s potion room or the lab of the three witches. I know many say it seems like a science lab but if you are a massive nerd for anything magic then I’m pretty sure you would easily agree with me on this one. The reels are set in a shelf format against the wall and the symbols are all glowing potions in uniquely designed bottles and vases.
Almost everything is animated so you will see the flower (think beauty and the beast) move around in the vase, you’ll also see the butterfly fluttering around in her holding and every once in a while you’ll see a spider running from right to left or vice versa on the wooden shelves serving as the reels. On the sides of the reels you will notice more wooden shelves and cabinets where you’ll find a book of magic, candles, a key and a skull candle. On the top shelf on the left you’ll see a pointy wizard hat stuck in place. In front of the reels a giant pot with something orange/yellow is set in place, this pot will be used to cook up all your magical winnings.
The wild feature of the slot is the frog but this creature could just as well have been a chameleon with the amount of times he changes colour. Overall, this slot is a visual delight and very well carved especially since you get lost in a world of magic and potions before you even start spinning.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack of the slot might just as well have features in one of the many Harry Potter movies especially when they were travelling through the dark forest or busy with something mischievous. The sound track fits the slot perfectly but to be quite honest there were times when we wanted a little bit of a change in sound. Each time you form a winning combination it lands in the pot where you’ll be awarded with a multiplied winning based on the total multiplier lighted up on the left-side of the reels during the game. Our favourite part was hearing the magical concoction boil and bubble before it unveils our wins. A cute sound added was the burp of the frog (Wild).
Bonus features and Gameplay
Instead of normal spinning reels this slot offers dropping symbols. All symbols that formed part of a winning pay line drop away and get replaced by new ones.
Every time new symbols are dropped in the multiplier will increase by one. Once a Mystery Game has ended the multiplier will increase one step for each win obtained during the Mystery Game.
The wild of this slot is the Wild Frog and he substitutes for all other symbols. Once a frog lands on your reels it will burp and the potent smell will remove all symbols from the same row and column. Other frogs remain in place as they are immune to the stinky odour. The frog will remain as a sticky wild for the rest of the game or until it can form part of a winning combination.
The mystery game is triggered at random when no new dropping symbols can occur. During this feature all symbols except for the moth, the flower and the frog will be removed and winnings will be awarded according to the pay table.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! To be honest, the slot doesn’t come with the biggest and best bonus features but each of them have been creatively concocted and uniquely designed which is why we love this slot so much. Thunderkick has never been afraid of a challenge when it comes to design and visual effects and FrogGrog is most certainly one of our favourite slots to play. The simplistic yet detailed design will be a dream come true for any magic lover.
